LDS Tech Website

With the global reach of the Church, members from around the world are curious about the type of technical work we do. This web site is designed to give you a glimpse into that work and how you can get involved.

Our Purpose

In order to achieve this goal, we have several cultural beliefs that governs all of our work.

Be the Standard

We contribute in making our technology department a world class IT organization that sets the standard for the industry.

Receive Revelation

We call down the Lord's help in doing our work to aid in exalting the human family.

Know Our Customer

We understand our customers, those in the field and those at headquarters.

Speak Up

We professionally challenge, ask questions, propose alternatives, and exchange feedback.

Know Our Role

We understand our roles, act decisively, and encourage others to do the same.

Performance = Results

We take accountability to meet commitments and deliver services better, faster, cheaper.

Make It Easy

We use and improve processes so that it is easy to work with the Technology department.

Our new LDS Technology site is a culmination of various technologies, many of which are freely available in the open source domain.

In creating the new LDSTech web site, we had a few technical objectives that we wanted to meet. They were.

  1. Demonstrate our use of open source software.
  2. Create a site that was community friendly and encouraged participation.
  3. Limit the amount of resources that the Church would need to spend in maintaining and supporting the web site.
